Communities who can edit what?

Hi, weekend is nearly over, hope everyone had a good one.

Anyways, I'm having trouble understanding the Communities plugin and who can edit what.

Who can edit a community, only the person who added it?

Who can start a new topic in an community?

Who can edit wiki? I don't have the wiki plugin, only the community version.

Who can add news to a community?

Is there anyway to set community so only higher levels can add communities? I tired a role edit but had no luck.

Thanks

    Hi Kimberlhy,

    I hope you are well today and had a nice weekend.

    Who can edit a community, only the person who added it?

    The person who has added it and the super admin user can edit the community.

    Who can start a new topic in an community?

    Any user who has joined the community can create a new topic in that community. Users can join the communities as following.

    1) Go to Communities > Find Communities
    2) Add your search term and click Search
    3) Once located click Join

    Who can edit wiki? I don't have the wiki plugin, only the community version.

    Communities plugin has wiki functionality so you don't need wiki plugin.

    The community wiki is designed to support a simple wiki within the site admin dasbhoard.

    To create a wiki:

    1) Go to Communities > Communities
    2) Click on Wiki next to the community you want to create the wiki in
    3) Click on New Page
    4) Add your title, content and click Publish

    The super admin user, the person who have created the community and the person having Moderator Privileges can edit wiki.

    You can add Moderator Privilege to the user from the following path.

    1) Go to Communities > Manage Communities
    2) Click on Members next to the community you want to grant Moderator Privileges
    3) Click on Add Moderator Privilege link next to the user you want to grant Moderator Privileges

    Who can add news to a community?

    Only community owners and moderators can add News.

    Is there anyway to set community so only higher levels can add communities? I tired a role edit but had no luck.

    You can achieve this by changing communities_add user capability using any of the following plugins.

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-role-editor/
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-access-manager/

    You will find information about usage of the Communities plugin on the following page.
